    Good Luck! Love your determination. Please don't join the band of those who love to shake their fists at the opponent, it shows bad sportsmanship and total disregard for another human being.

    Apart from that though I love your courage.

    Ms Li Na

    I'm the creator of Physio Technical Tennis. I just have to leave you this comment and I feel that this will be helpful to your tennis. In my opinion, you should have won the Aussie Open. I personally thought your coaching selection was not the correct choice. The change in your game is totally adverse to your style of play. You became a defensive player instead of an offensive player which you were in the past. I feel I'm an expert in technical and game analysis of tennis. You have the quality and desire to reach #1. I feel that I have the ingredients to elevate your game. I'm located in Southern California and my email is as follow ay_tennistrip@yahoo.com. My profile is also listed in the site LinkedIn. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me or suggest this to your Chinese team members. My system is totally unique and aggressive which is more adaptable to your style of play. Best of luck to you and hope you will contact me. A few minutes of your time may enlighten the rest of your tennis future.

    Best Regards

    Hi Li Na,

    Congratulations on reaching the finals in the 2013 Ausstralian Open, once again you had a tremendous run. I am very disappointed you lost in the finals because I am convinced that if you did not suffer that injury the tournament was yours. I do not understand the Australian Open organizers allowing fireworks to disrupt your match. The last thing you needed was a delay of over ten minutes. You were up 2-1 and playing wonderful tennis despite your injury and of course
    you are playing under adrenelin which is allowing you to try and play through the injury. When you break for ten minutes your body cools downs and look what happens you fall on the first point and lose 5 of the next 6 games. If the organizers were aware of the firework celebration then they should have started your match an hour earlier. I do not like to use excuses but in this case you were robbed. I am so proud of you and the way you play tennis.Keep it up Li and you will win another major before you retire, you make China very prod of you also. All the best.

    I would like to say that a failure need not be an end for you know failure is the mother of future success. I would suggest that you look into conserving in your energy in your stroke and emphasis on accuracy instead. The europeans are more athletic generally and matching them head on in the area of force will loose out,also in stamina
    I suggest that you use more of the elbow when hitting the ball instead of using more of the shoulder,also the employ more of the foot pad too.Derive strength from these department can conserve energy too.
    Hope this can contribute to your improvement.

    Li Na,
    I just saw the media interview of you after your game with Kim Clijsters at the Australian Open 2012.
    "I" am saddened and appalled by the framing of the question posed to you by the media. The media should be ashamed of themselves! You played a great game. I have always been a fan. You are truly great player. No one wins every match, and you have won many many matches internationally and China should be very proud of you, rather than finding fault with you. I am a Canadian and disgusted with the media.

    Hi Na,

    Love what you are doing for Chinese Tennis, but it is very discouraging that you have not taken your game to another level. Your serve and net play is inhibiting you from becoming a higher ranked player. Keep up the great work, but please take that next step b/c you only have a few years left in your pro career.

    Sincerely your supporter,

    Tony
